Richard Harrison is on the revenge path for the men who killed his sister. There is 70’s sleaze and violence, and Harrison with his 70’s style sideburns (complete with bald patch). The film is routine stuff for me.

Not outstanding but surely one of Harrison’s more enjoyable 70s westerns. Story structure is bit different from usual - first we see the final gunfight between Harrison & the bad guy which ends with the bad guy dying of course. After that we go back in time to see how it all came to this. Nice cast of comic book style villains and one of my favorite bad guys, George Wang, is in it.

I think the bad guy who dies in the beginning is dubbed by same guy who also dubbed most (if not all) of Claudio Camaso’s roles. His voice is very creepy.

If anything ever stopped me from watching any 70’s Harrison movies, it would be the bald atch. He couln’t be more than 40 when he started going bald.

But, one of the worst bald spots is given to Klaus Kinski afterhe grew his hair really long. Such as in Shoot and Pray.

Harrison has done worse westerns in the 70’s for sure.

Missed this one when they showed it earlier today on Encore Westerns. Will make sure to DVR it when it airs again on the 30th…


(ENNIOO) #6

Will be interesting to see what the quality is like.


(flynnparadox) #7

Indeed. Is this available in a good copy somewhere?


(ENNIOO) #8

Not to sure. My copy is just a fullscreen copy from an old VHS.


(flynnparadox) #9

Hmm. Well, it’s gotta be better than that… Hopefully. I see that the database doesn’t list any kind of DVD release so it seems it is rather rare.

Just found out I also have a 1.85 widescreen VHS copy with no subs under the title of Deadly Trackers. Did not notice at first as was getting mixed up with the Richard Harris western called The Deadly Trackers :slight_smile: . Anyway vast improvement over the fullscreen copy.

  3. a Spanish DVD in Sp. Letterbox.

Tom,

Wait a minute, isn’t that the movie we’re talking about? That’s the one being shown on Encore, right? Deadly Trackers is the title it’s being shown under. Now I’m confused…

The Deadly Trackers starring Richard Harris is this one:

Damn, Richard Harris and Richard Harrison, both Deadly Trackers… I wonder which one Encore is showing…


(ENNIOO) #15

A pure guess :slight_smile: , but I will go for the Richard Harris one.


(Silver Wolf) #16

Does someone know for 100% sure what is the correct English title for this film? It has been called Long Cavalcade of Vengeance, Long Revenge’s Ride and Deadly Trackers at least. I have always figured that Deadly Trackers title is a mistake since this film is often confused for the Richard Harris one. There aren’t any “deadly trackers” in Boccia’s film. I have never seen this film w/ English opening credits. The copy I have is audiodub from German tape which is called Django something (crazy Germans… ::))


(Tom B.) #17

I’m sure whoever was the first author to print DEADLY TRACKERS confused Richard Harris and Richard Harrison. Once something like this finds its way into print it spreads like wildfire as every author, researcher etc. afterwards reprints the same mistake again and again without researching.


(scherpschutter) #18

If I’m not mistaken, Jerry Fielding’s score for The Wild Bunch was reused for The Deadly Trackers (the one without -son), so who knows, in the future, good old Richard Harrison will become the key figure in the history of the western: the one who told Sergio to take Clint for Fistful, and the one who inspired Sam to make the Bunch.


(ENNIOO) #19

You are correct.

70’s sleaze and violence? Sounds good.
